Synopsis :
Added: Aug 09, 2017 6:29 am
The Naval Medical Logistics Command (NMLC) intends to negotiate on a sole source basis (IAW FAR 13.501(a), Only One Responsible Source. The proposed source is University of California San Diego (UCSD) Anatomical Services, 9500 Gilman Dr., Mail Code 0627, San Diego, CA 92093-0627.

Fresh cadaveric specimens are stored in the Bioskills Training Center (BTC) walk-in refrigerator and are used in the education of Staff and Resident Physicians through the Directorate for Professional Education, Academic Council for Graduate Medical Education (GME). NMCSD's BTC walk-in refrigerator is the primary back-up to NMCSD's morgue walk-in refrigerator. NMCSD requires an alternative storage facility in the event the mortuary requires use of the BTC walk-in refrigerator or the BTC walk-in refrigerator becomes non-operational due to extenuating circumstances such as a breakdown or maintenance.

The cadavers are required to be delivered within a one-hour period directly to the refrigerator/freezer and picked up within a one-hour period at the refrigerator/freezer. The one-hour delivery is critical as fresh cadaver specimens shall be maintained at a maximum temperature of 32 degrees Fahrenheit during transport as to not accelerate the rate of decomposition, the spread of bacteria, or the growth of mold/mildew. The vendor shall have a separate walk-in refrigerator (L-97", W-134", H-78") with the capacity needed for the BTC cadaveric specimens (minimum needed space would permit storage of at least 150 cadaveric tissues), while the NMCSD morgue uses the walk-in refrigerator for official command business (most commonly a body of a recently deceased person whose body needs to be stored separately from the BTC cadaveric specimens) or the BTC walk-in is inoperable due to breakdown or maintenance. Vendor shall possess an up-to-date Defense Biometric Identification System pass to enter the military base.
